CSC to host, develop and manage most of trust’s IT and back-office processes
IT services provider CSC announced that it has signed a contract with Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust for a new programme of work to outsource the trust’s technology services.
During the 7-year agreement, with the option to extend to 10 years, CSC has the responsibility for hosting, developing and managing most of the trust’s IT and back-office processes every day.
Besides, providing IT help desk, networking, infrastructure, desktop engineering, application development and support, it will also provide advice and support for a clinically driven health informatics function, the company added.
CSC president of UK healthcare Sheri Thureen believes this is a key milestone in the evolution of CSC’s healthcare business. She added, "This contract with Royal Berkshire plays to CSC’s core strengths as a world-class provider of outsourced IT services and as a major provider of IT services to the NHS in England."
